Parallal LCD Display test fails

Found an old one I had ordered. Spent most of a day on the net trying to get the 14 pins defined. Did a *REALLY* crappy job soldering into those *TINY* holes ... there's got to be a better way ...

Anyway I only got random blocks on the screen when I powered up. Don't think its shorted (poor solder job) but not sure.

Trying to hook things together is the nasty secret they never tell you before you begin playing with electronics. Someone needs to write a book about that. I've got tons of books on Oopic, .. whatever .. everyone just seems to assume a Newb knows how to hook it all up or solder the tiny holes .. wow!
